About the Authors
  • In this fascinating book Malcolm Evans describes in detail the ways in which the freedom of religious belief has been incorporated into the legislation of the countries of Europe. He goes on to examine the mechanisms by which this freedom is guaranteed, and a number of problematic cases that have recently been discussed in the Council of Europe. In a concluding section he outlines a number of developments that will influence the direction that the search for the protection of religious liberty under international law may take.

    • First major treatment of the right to religious liberty in European law
    • Authoritative work from leading figure in human rights law
    • Highly topical subject in European law
    • Contains the most up-to-date and extensive examination of Article 9 of the ECHR (European Court of Human Rights): the most extensive coverage of the work of the UN special Rapporteur
    • The book focuses upon religious liberty as a freedom in its own right, rather than as a component of minority rights and discrimination
